The Place: El Medano is a charming village with a real surfy, laidback atmosphere, great food and most importantly epic sailing. It is an extremely popular windsurfing destination and it’s not hard to see why.  Spanish bars, restaurants and surf shops line the harbour and boardwalk, which is always quietly busy with people making use of the public exercise equipment and tranquil spots for some morning yoga.

Coaching: Coaching runs Sunday – Friday, with change over day on Saturday at a cost of 440€ per week.

Intro to waves - On this clinic we coach from first time out in the waves right up to aerials and jump variations. 

Each March one week of the clinics will be a dedicated WSC Water Women clinic where Lizzie Baillie will run a ladies group.  For more information about our Water Women clinics please click here

Advanced waves - This clinic will be focussed on jumping manoeuvres, from forwards to back and push loops.  Also onshore wave riding technique, improving bottom and top turns.

Insurance: Insurance: We recommend VDWS insurance for all of our clinics, they charge an annul premium of 39 Euro and cover you worldwide for windsurfing and other sports and are totally worth it! Click here for more....

level: 

Intro to waves - we ask that you are able to sail a wave board, be comfortable in the harness and footstraps and waterstart

 

Advanced Wave - you should be able to comfortably sail in waves head to logo high, launch and land through shore break, already jumping and wave riding and looking to start jumping manoeuvres and improve riding.

conditions: There are 3 sailing spots catering for different abilities from learning to wave sail up to throwing aerials and big loops.  Launching and sailing off the main beach offers a great teaching area and playground for those learning to launch and get comfortable in the waves, the harbour wall provides a step up and some good wave riding and jumping.  During the intro to waves week we will be sailing in the Bay and perhaps at the Wall. 

Finally there is Cabezo beach just around the corner is a little more extreme and even hosts a PWA wave event during the summer months. This is where the advanced wave course will be held, with the option of also sailing at the Harbour Wall at low tide.
 

Travel: Flights are pretty cheap with lots of airlines, you fly to Tenerife South airport from most British airports (just make sure you book Saturday flights!) Once you arrive, Medano is only 10 minutes by taxi from the airport and costs around 10 – 15 Euros

Temp: During March the average daytime temperature is around 25 degrees, and the water is a bit cooler after winter, so a wetsuit is definitely recommended, a long summer suit or a shortie (for the more hardy amongst you).  Also the evenings can be a bit chilly so it’s worth packing a hoody and some jeans.

In summer the daytime temperature is around 30 degrees but the wind can still be cool.  Most riders wear at least a summer 2mm shorty, some will sail in just board shorts.  We recommend bringing a wetsuit as we will spend a lot of time on the water and on the beach. Even during summer it's always good to have at least one hoody for the windy nights!

What else the town offers: Cycling, both road and mountain biking is big here so pack your lycra if that’s your thing.  There are also lots of excursions such as trekking mount Teide or the giant water park; Siam Park in Las Americas.
